    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:31

    Y le rogaban que no les mandase ir al abismo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 8:31

    Verse 31. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the
    deep.] In the Chaldaic philosophy, mention is made of certain material demons, who are permitted to wander about on the earth, and are horribly afraid of being sent into abysses and subterranean places.

    Psellus says, Deuteronomy Daemonibus: "These material demons fearing to be sent into abysses, and standing in awe of the angels who send them thither, if even a man threaten to send them thither and pronounce the names of those angels whose office that is, it is inexpressible how much they will be affrighted and troubled. So great will their astonishment be, that they cannot discern the person that threatens them. And though it be some old woman or little old man that menaces them, yet so great is their fear that they depart as if the person who menaces had a power to kill them." See Stanley's Chaldaic Philosophy.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 31. And they besought him , etc.] That is, all the devils, the whole legion of them, entreated Jesus, under whose power, and at whose dispose they were: that he would not command them to go out into the deep ; meaning, not the deep waters of the sea, for thither they ran the swine at their own request; but the bottomless pit of hell, where others of these spirits lay in chains of darkness; and so the Ethiopic version renders it, into hell: they desired, that when they went out of this man, they might not be ordered thither, or remanded to their former prison; for they knew that if he gave the word of command, they must obey; but that they might be suffered to continue in that country, and range about on earth, or be any where, rather than in hell.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-40 - Those that put to
    sea in a calm, even at Christ's word, must ye prepare for a storm, and for great peril in that storm. There is n relief for souls under a sense of guilt, and fear of wrath, but to go to Christ, and call him Master, and say, I am undone, if thou dost no help me. When our dangers are over, it becomes us to take to ourselve the shame of our own fears, and to give Christ the glory of ou deliverance. We may learn much out of this history concerning the worl of infernal, malignant spirits, which though not working now exactly in the same way as then, yet all must at all times carefully guar against. And these malignant spirits are very numerous. They have enmity to man and all his comforts. Those under Christ's government ar sweetly led with the bands of love; those under the devil's governmen are furiously driven. Oh what a comfort it is to the believer, that all the powers of darkness are under the control of the Lord Jesus! It is miracle of mercy, if those whom Satan possesses, are not brought to destruction and eternal ruin. Christ will not stay with those wh slight him; perhaps he may no more return to them, while others ar waiting for him, and glad to receive him.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    31. Command them. The plural, referring to the
    legion.

    The deep (abusson). Lit., the bottomless. Transcribed into our abyss, as Rev. Mark has a quite different request, that he would not send them out of the country (v. 10). In Rom. x. 7, used of Hades, to which Christ descended; and in Revelation always of the bottomless pit. The demons refer to their place of abode and torment.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:31 {Into the abyss} (eis ten abusson). Rare old word common in LXX from a privative and baq-s (deep). So bottomless place (supply cwra). The deep sea in #Ge 1:2; 7:11. The common receptacle of the dead in #Ro 10:7 and especially the abode of demons as here and #Re 9:1-11; 11:7; 17:8; 20:1,3.
